Former State Bar of Texas President Randy Sorrels received the prestigious Attorney of the Year Award at the Texas Legal Excellence Awards Dinner on September 14 in Dallas. The award, given by ALM Media and Texas Lawyer, recognizes a lawyer who provides the greatest success and service throughout Texas. Amy M. Stewart of the Stewart Law Group, and Thomas Melsheimer of Winston & Strawn, both in Dallas, were the two other finalists for the award.

“This award means a lot not only to myself, but to the lawyers at our firm, including my wife and law partner,” Sorrels said in a press release. “We opened our law firm doors less than two years ago and have put our heart, energy, and soul into providing the best legal representation we can to our clients. Even with COVID-19 restrictions in place, we have tried to relentlessly pursue our clients’ cases to get them in front of juries—and the juries have responded with just and righteous verdicts.”
